I have seen the Chestnuts in a lot of vegetable shops. I never tried them for a long time as I had no idea about these awesome nuts. One day one of my friends told me about these nuts. So I thought of getting some and trying at home. To my surprise, it turned out to be so tasty. My kids (especially my daughter who is a picky eater) enjoyed it. If you get a chance, do buy this. Do not hesitate to try these boiled chestnuts as a tasty snack.
